The distance between two successive crests of a wave is 15 cm and the velocity is 300ms¯¹. Calculate the frequency.

A. 4.5 × 10⁵ Hz

B. 4.5 × 10² Hz

C. 2.0 × 10³ Hz

D. 2.0 × 10² Hz

QUICK ANSWER…

C

DETAILS…

The distance between two successive crests of a wave is actually its wavelength.

So, wavelength = 15cm = 15/100m = 0.15m

Velocity = 300ms¯¹

Now,

The distance between two successive crests of a wave is 15 cm and

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is incorrect.
  2. Option B is incorrect.
  3. C is correct.
  4. D is not the correct answer. the number of zeros are three.

KEY-POINTS…

You may please note these/this:

  • Remember to convert the wavelength from cm to m, as the velocity is given in m/s.
  • The distance between two successive crests of a wave is = 1 wavelength.
  • The distance between two successive troughs of a wave is also = 1 wavelength.
